Because our trip to Niagara Falls was to celebrate my hubby’s 50th birthday, which is a pretty big milestone, we decided to make it count. So, as I mentioned before, we booked a really swanky hotel room at the Embassy Suites which overlooked the falls. As soon as we walked through the door to our room, I ran to the window to see if the view was as amazing as advertised. It was, but unfortunately the windows were filthy.
As photographers (amateur or professional), we will go to any length to get the shot we want, so the dirty windows weren’t going to stand in my way. Even though there was no balcony, I did notice that one window at the bottom could open outwards a couple of inches to let in fresh air. So, I popped off the screen, opened the window, and dropped to the floor. What resulted was nothing short of acrobatics trying to find a position where I could point my lens out the narrow opening and capture most of the view. This was the result, and I must say I have never had a hotel room with quite as beautiful a view as this.
